Most men and women deal with specific areas of stubborn fat deposits that do not improve regardless of diet and exercise. Patients in the area of Paramus, NJ who are unhappy with these areas of the body are encouraged to book a consultation visit with the team at Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey to discuss the benefits of surgical interventions such as liposuction.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that is best used to treat specific areas of the body, such as the stomach, flanks, and thighs, that often accumulate unwanted fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss solution, but rather a body contouring solution. Patients can treat many areas of the body with liposuction which makes it a versatile procedure.
How does liposuction work?
Liposuction is a procedure that is performed with the use of a tube called a cannula. Dr. Frank Ferraro uses the cannula through small incisions in the area. The cannula suctions out unwanted fat from the body. When performed properly, patients will notice a smoother appearance in the area that has less fat. Additionally, the area will not appear “lumpy” if the procedure was done correctly.
What about excess skin?
If areas being treated with liposuction require significant fat removal, patients may be left with excess, sagging skin. These patients may want to discuss with their doctor the possibility of removing excess skin at the same time as the liposuction procedure. When performed in the abdominal area, this procedure is often referred to as a tummy tuck. The doctor will remove unwanted fat, and then remove a necessary amount of skin to tighten the area as well, leaving a smooth and firm abdominal area at the end of treatment.
